In Pursuit Of The Perfect Pickle
Pure Pickled Perfection in a jar. Year after year homemakers submit these briny cukes and veggies in pursuit of fame and glory. To the chosen few, they stand as a validation for years of canning. As for the rest, well... you could always eat 'em.
Note: A local cannery actually selects blue ribbon winners and puts out pickles and other preserves made from these recipes. And they're usually pretty good. Not exactly a food made in a research lab, these humble treats actually came into existence because someone liked the taste- rather than having a marketing group design a product that could maximize profit. What a concept.
